Freese Looks To MTN8 Final v Pirates

Platinum Stars head coach, Allan Freese, says that his team needs to show respect to Orlando Pirates ahead of their MTN8 final encounter.

Dikwena beat Wits 2-1 on Tuesday, securing their place in the final of the tournament with a 6-3 aggregate scoreline, making sure that they keep their place as the competition's top goal scorers.

Allan Freese’s men have come away with three wins, three Man of the Match awards and nine goals from their games, having knocked out both Free State Stars and The Clever Boys.

Freese says that he doesn’t want to change things too much, although insists that Pirates deserve respect.

He told the Siya crew, “The one thing we mustn’t forget is that Pirates have done very well in Africa and we must respect that. They’ve done well there, and I’ll have to motivate my boys, because Pirates are a good team and we can’t take that away from them.

“We’d like to play our normal game, because we’ve done well when we’ve played that, we wouldn’t want to change things too much. We’re now just taking it one step at a time.”

Stars take on Pirates at the Moses Mabhida Stadium this Saturday, with the game beginning at 20h15.
